Structural changes were found in several areas of the brain, among them the auditory and sensory cortex and in the frontal cortex, the region linked to decision-making and working memory.

Researchers found “meditation may impact age related declines in cortical structure.” In other words, meditation may result in a much younger brain. Most people see their cortexes shrink as they age, but 50-year-old meditators in the study had the same amount of gray matter as people half their age.

To make sure this wasn’t because long-term meditators have more gray matter to begin with, researchers conducted a second study. In this study, researchers observed people with no experience with meditation in an eight-week mindfulness course.
